In search for the Holy Grail

glass and barb wire RED by Bas Froon

Glass is one of these materials where the making has a beauty of it’s own. It’s like dancing with molten lava..

I had the honour to work together with Marc Barreda to turn my dreams into reality while exploring the (in)possibilities of working with glass.

Inspired by the medieval legend of the holy grail and the barb wire which is now ‘protecting’ our borders, I got the urge to use that as a moulding material together with hot glass. Two powerful materials as a metaphor for the challenges in our society.

What would win?
